Step 6 – Spray each section with Oribe “Dry” spray to create texture. The product absorbs oils in the hair to give a longer lasting tease.

Step 7 – Tease hair section by section with a comb. Using a fine tooth comb with small teeth is best.

Step 8 – Start to lightly comb or brush the shape in. Use your hands to adjust as desired. But remember – it doesn’t have to be perfect!

Step 9 – Bring hair back towards your ponytail using your hands. Lightly spray with “Dry” again to get a better hold, and wrap around the pony’s base.
